Eventually, the paint holder will no longer be visible.
That plant make nice little pink flowers btw.
Now that I know the name of the plant, I can add it to my list of known plants.

Cute idea. I was just wondering how to DIY some riparium plant holders. Ended up popping a spider plant start in just using one of the leftover plant containers from the LFS simply clipped to the back of the tank.
